Ricky Martin has sex to stay in shape.
The She Bangs hitmaker – who came out as gay in 2010 – admits having three-year-old twin sons Matteo an Valentino helps him stay trim, but he likes to supplement the childcare with intimacy with his partner Carlos Gonzalez.
He told Details magazine: “I’m a father of two toddlers. And lifting them is a workout – this is biceps, this is triceps. I also try to make love. That helps.”
Despite his closeness to his sons and boyfriend, Ricky admits marriage with Carlos is not on the cards at the present time.
He said: “Everybody is asking me when I’m going to get married. People that I don’t know are pushing it. But it’s not something that we’re talking about.”
Although unsure about getting hitched himself, he thinks prejudiced people should understand that “love manifests in various ways”.
He added: “I don’t want to blame the government. I think there’s a stolen faith – an interpretation of what God ‘says’. That’s your God.
“I have my God. It’s about civil rights. I’m not telling you what to believe. I wish people understood that love manifests in different ways. Allow me to have my life and I won’t mess with yours.” - Bang Showbiz
